We believe the best way to celebrate Black History Month is to celebrate it year round; to never stop working towards the goals and examples set forth by extraordinary individuals at all levels and sectors of society to make our county a more inclusive and equitable community.
The Community Foundation has partnered with Church World Service for the second straight year to support the Concert for Refugees: a celebration of the unique, innovative, and illuminating perspectives from across the globe that help make Lancaster County Refugee Capital of America.
Welcoming New Americans – immigrants and refugees – is part of our community’s DNA and an important piece of what has made Lancaster County strong and resilient. And in many ways runs counter to the current narrative of our national politics.
As part of the Community Foundation's continued commitment to providing free capacity building opportunities for the community benefit sector in Lancaster County, we were excited to develop and host an information session about the ways entire staff can be empowered to help shape office culture, protect victims, and create policies that promote empathy in the workplace!
